The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge #7!

Hello! How is everyone! Good I hope! It’s July apparently! Good grief…nearly Christmas!!
So today launches our new monthly challenge over on THE PAPER NEST DOLLS CHALLENGE BLOG and our theme is Anything Goes! This time we are sponsored by the wonderful…

…who are also offering this a fab prize……

… so check out THE BLOG for all the details!

Now Christine has designed a whole range of dolls on a fairy-tale theme all of which you can see HERE and I decided to use the super pretty PRINCESS SWEET PEA.

I guess I went with the obvious for this card by putting PEA in front of a bed piled with mattresses that I made from the fab papers in the LOTV ‘Always and Forever’ NitWit Collection pad.  A little rough on the cutting front and the hand drawn buttons and pillow are a bit of a fright but she found the pea so she’s happy!! J 

The four-poster bed is made from Kraft card and a Spellbinders border die.  You won’t believe the amount of foam pads that are lurking around the back! Shocking!!!
I couldn’t find any SN markers to match this time so I used Promarkers instead which I haven’t used for ages.  I was surprised to find there was ink still left in them!!

Dies/Punches: Spellbinders ‘A2 Scalloped Border 1’
Embossing folder: M-Bossabilities ‘Dainty Dots’
Card: Neenah Solar White - Kraft
Paper: LOTV ‘Always and Forever’
Colouring/Ink:  Promarkers and SN pencils
Others: Gems – Ribbon - Lace – Fabric roses – Liquid Pearls – Embossing Folder

So nothing else mattress (oh yes I did!) except going over to the blog and joining us for our Anything Goes Challenge and where you will see some stunning inspiration from the DT. And don’t forget to visit the shop for all of Christine’s adorable stamps!!

Thanks so much for looking and for your lovely comments and have a wonderful day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
